|Erik Powers and Ben Solberg, otherwise known as the FrozBroz|
Every Thursday, ice cream lovers in the know log onto their computers and hope that it's their week to get lucky. Once a week FrozBroz Ice Cream holds a contest to give away two of their precious pints of ice cream. Made with fresh cream and local eggs, each pint is crafted into a wonderful dense scoop of incredibly rich, luscious ice cream. The flavors are unconventional to say the least: almond, green anise with fig, cranberry with apple cider, cognac caramel, and hazelnut mocha with whiskey caramel. Owners Erik Powers and Ben Solberg are clearly working beyond Ben or Jerry's wildest dreams.
The pair's dedication to making high-quality, small-batch, flavor-forward ice creams began with an ice cream maker and a friendly challenge to see who could make a better batch. What began as a lark, grew into an obsession. Soon, Powers and Solberg were staying up late, poring over flavors and cultivating a legion of rabid fans. As they continue to test and retest each flavor and texture combination, it's like listening to two vintners developing wine. Flavors bloom, transform as they age, and the two work at drawing out subtle nuances from each ingredient.
The problem for fans of FrozBroz is that these coveted pints have never been available for sale. But with a brick-and-mortar FrozBroz location in the works, that is about to change.
